I need help with a 700$ Budget - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I would go with Redwoodz Intel build myself. Upgrade the processor later if I could not afford the 2500k right now. Plus it has an SSD!

60+ FPS is more than enough.

Or go for the underdog, AMD.

Is there another video card that is the same performance for the price? I have been reading the reviews on that gigabyte video card and alot of people complain about crashes and blue screens. Which makes me wary of purchasing one.

^ DOH, if I had only seen that post one week ago.  That build is flawed.  You could've gotten the full Phenom II x6 combo (1055T) + M5A97 for less than the cost of that by going to NCIX and the generic DDR3-1333 RAM was a ripoff (DDR3-1600 at the same price or less) and is going to impact your OC flexibility.  You can also get a non-refurb 1TB 7200RPM HDD for less price.  Have you ordered yet?

right now I have a i5-2300 in my current computer what would you prefer the 2300 or then phenom II x6 1055t
